"Fantastic Adaptations, Transformations, and Audiences"
Abstracts are now being accepted for an edited collection on historical narratives and theoretical implications of how children and youth relate to political performances. By examining different avenues of youth participation in theatrical moments of nationalism, this book will engage in a dialogue about how children and/or youth involved with public events intersect political ideologies/practices. Therefore, we invite studies on theatre created by and/or for children and/or youth on themes of nationalism and politics, as well as studies into youth-driven/centered political performance in the broader sense, from parades to protest movements.
Just passed her 300th birthday, the popularity of Sarah Fielding is increasing; yet, her life and writing tend to be overshadowed by the critical reception of her brother, Henry. This panel seeks to advance the conversation surrounding Sarah Fielding, especially as it relates to new approaches on themes of gender, nature, trauma, and psychology in her work. Furthermore, papers which focus on teaching Fielding are encouraged.
Please send abstracts of approximately 250 words and a 1-page CV to Stephanie Harper Recine (firstname.lastname@example.org) by September 15th, 2012.

The long nineteenth century set the world on the move. Travel became increasingly important for business and pleasure, for war and peace. At the same time, new forms of moving people arose: the balloon, ships, undergrounds, funiculars, the railroads. Each carried riders to great distances, different locales, and novel pursuits. But motion wasn't purely spatial; new movements arose as well, sweeping the inhabitants of the period into fresh vistas of thought and endeavor. We seek papers and panels that capture the sense of movement at work and at play during the long nineteenth century (1789-1914).

From the pamphleteers of the English Civil War to the library of 'Occupy Wall Street', the image of the book has often been a central element of political propaganda. But in what ways have cultures of books and reading shaped political action and ideologies? Or, conversely, how has politics affected the form and understanding of texts?
We invite paper proposals relating to the theme of 'Politics and the Power of Print', from any historical period or geographical location, and relating to movements across the ideological spectrum.
